• Broaden your knowledge of adjectives used to describe personalities, such as “simpático” for kind, “egoísta” for selfish, and “honesto” for honest.
  • Understand how to correctly conjugate verbs to match the subject in a phrase. For instance, if talking about your younger brother who is lazy, you’d say ’Mi hermano menor es perezoso’.
  • Remember that some adjectives may change according to the gender of the noun they are describing. For example, “alegre” for a happy man, but “alegra” for a happy woman.
  • You should also know how to negate personality traits. For example, you could say “Mi amigo no es aburrido,” which means “My friend is not boring.”

Sentence Construction

  • Learn how to use adjectives correctly in sentences, remembering that they usually come after the noun they’re describing in Spanish. For example, “Mi padre es divertido” - My dad is funny.

Expressing Opinions and Relationships

  • Expressing opinion is a key skill you need to master. Phrases like “En mi opinión”, “Creo que”, and “Pienso que” all mean “I think that” and are great to use when speaking about others’ personalities.
  • Be prepared to explain your relationships with these people you are describing. You could use phrases like “Nos llevamos bien/mal” to express whether you get on well or not with someone.

Questions and Answers

  • Familiarise yourself with questions you may be asked about your family and friends’ personalities, such as “¿Cómo es tu madre?” (What is your mum like?) or “¿Cómo se llevan tus padres?” (How do your parents get along?). Ensure you can reply to these questions fluently and accurately.
